Hendrick's Midsummer Solstice

70cl | 43.4% ABV | Scotland

Devised by Hendrick’s Gin Master Distiller Leslie Gracie, Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice Gin is the inaugural product in her Cabinet of Curiosities range. Despite its ultraviolet bottle, there’s no messing around here – this is solid stuff.

Hendrick’s Summer Solstice Gin makes great use of the original Hendrick’s botanicals, but paints them with a huge, fresh, summertime splash of flavour. Orange blossoms, heather, lavender and rose sing out. Try it in a G&T with berries to garnish.

Key Flavours

Floral
Fruity
Sweet
""Flirtatiously floral" is how they describe it, but I'd say this is a direct pursuit... Raspberries, roses and a big swathes of lavender accompany a candied orange. The fruit makes it summery, but the lead notes are its very bold florals."

About this product

Hendrick’s uses two still types – Pot stills which produce heavy, oily flavours and Carter Head stills, which produce lighter spirits through vapour infusion. The two spirits are blended after distillation with further essences added thereafter.

Hendrick’s Gin was created by William Grant and Sons in 1999. The brand saw a gap in the market and knew that the two people best placed to fill it were their Malt Master David Stewart and Distiller Leslie Gracie.

William Grant is a hugely famous name in distilling, though it's certainly more known in the Whisky world. Still, they’ve aced the gin, with Hendrick’s and all its variations met with rapturous applause.

Hendrick's Gin

Distilled by gin wizard Leslie Gracie up in Scotland, Hendrick’s was perhaps the first beautifully different weirdo on the Gin scene, and almost certainly one of the major names responsible for...

"One of the big reasons Hendrick's became so big is that it's an accessible, easy sipping floral gin with (aside from the cucumber and rose) a soft chamomile and sweet citrus hit. If you are just getting into gin, it's a great place to start."
